Khan publishes and mentors research
Posted: Monday, February 25, 2019
Walayet A. Khan, University of Evansville professor of finance, published a paper titled, “Interrelations of U.S. market fears and emerging markets returns: global evidence’ in the first edition of 2019 of the International Journal of Finance & Economics.
The results of the study underscore the importance of capturing interactions between US stock market uncertainty changes (VIX) and emerging markets (EM) returns through their variance-covariance matrix and have important implications for global diversification, flight- to-safety choices, and hedging the cross market risks.
Professor Khan is also serving as faculty mentor for the UE Purple Aces investment analysts team which will participate in 2018/2019 CFA investment challenge competition in Nashville Tennessee. This experience, as per the CFA Institute, “provides university students with hands-on mentoring and intensive training in financial analysis.”
